Welcome to Flute Frenzy!
Updated: Nov 17, 2021
In this section you will find general information about the Flute Frenzy organization and details of Flute Frenzy activities.
You have joined one of the most unique non-profit associations in the area, where flutists of all ages play flutes of all sizes. Flutists will rehearse with others in their age group, with rehearsals sometimes
overlapping to play music together with other groups.
Many concerts will include performances by all ensembles.
Materials you will need:
The Flute Frenzy handbook contains all of the information you need to know as a member of Flute Frenzy, including policies for attendance, dress for concerts, lists of the board members, and answers to most of the questions you might ask.
Where we meet:
Due to the present situation with the Covid 19 pandemic, we are being very careful at our rehearsals and concerts. Flutists must use a Win-D-Fender, and piccolos, bass flutes and contrabass flutes must use shields during rehearsals and performances.
Our rehearsal site is a huge room where we can space ourselves adequately.

The rehearsal immediately prior to a concert performance is the "Dress Rehearsal." Schedules may be adjusted for this rehearsal to provide time to rehearse all of the repertoire. Please be flexible.

Flute Frenzy owned instruments will be assigned to one individual only for a concert preparation period. If you wish to borrow the instrument to practice it at home, please fill out the form below and read carefully before signing. A board member will also need to sign the form before you can take the instrument home. You will need to take responsibility for caring for the instrument properly, including cleaning as outlined in the handbook, as well as on the document below. Submit this form to the treasurer, Cherry Robinson.
Your director will select and provide music for you. Most of the time you will receive this by email or via a link to a folder of music. This music needs to be printed, hole-punched, and secured in your binder, and brought to every rehearsal and performance.
